DragonCooler Posted June 4, 2010 Report Share Posted June 4, 2010 I am heavily interested in becoming a pilot. Money is no problem to go to flight school (lets say). I have been reading the forums and it looks as though the job market is not going well in the country for pilots. Many are being laid off and others simply are not getting hired after completing their CFII. Also lets not mention finding a school that will even hire you after completion. I currently live in the Dallas/Fort Worth Texas area and was thinking, what about the Air National Guard? I am 24 and will have a 4 year college degree(currently in school). I know how the military can be about their promises, but what are the odds, or is it even worth considering, going with the ANG asking to become a pilot there? Having a college degree, I would assume I would go in as an officer which is required to be a pilot. Does anyone have better knowledge than I, or better yet experience? I am trying to think ahead and plan on having a semi smooth transition into flying as a career. Not only would they get me hours, but its freaking military trained hours!!!
